to us that we have got some things coming up. we're doing it to your budget in two years and we're looking at a prop h renewal and a children's fund renewal. i do not want us to sit idle on this and as my colleagues have clearly articulated, we have to be strong and continued to advocate for funding from the states so our city does not have to continue to augment what they cannot provide. and we have to make sure that we continue to keep our nose to the grindstone and do the hard work that we do. and continue to thank our voters who support us in the ways they do because we're going to -- we have got to -- two large funds that have helped us through many years and we would not able to get through these terrible budget times without it. just a heartfelt thank you to all of our san franciscans who continued to support our school district and to the city for all their continued support as well. i am a little curious if we have the kind of list of what we would restore should any special money comes falling from the sky. i know there are multiple conversations that are happening not
if you tell us though name of your firm. one of the things that was mentioned is they coordinate with the other engineering and design people and the construction firm, and one of the major problems with these kinds of construction projects is coordination, making sure that everybody is building the same building and everything fits together right. in large measure, that is the architect's job. do you make sure that the structural stuff fits together, with the architecture and the mechanical? >> that is where we earn most of our money. >> that is difficult? >> no question, we had cahill come on board at the later stages of design to help with the construction, details, flexing of systems, that sort of thing. >> we're fortunate today to have john with us, who was a soil engineer. one of the design teams, one of the original first persons to be looking at this project is the soil engineer. they look at where the building will be built, what is the soil like, and how we make the building hit the ground. people say, you go down to bedrock. are we going down to bedrock? is there bad r
. not even talking about using three architects. i think it is a wonderful example of how to really create tively use the freeway. all of the legal foundations in place for labor, for affordable housing, etc., i am comfortable with and i greatly appreciate mr. lee being a strong supporter. in the end, i believe the position the department takes is a correct one. however, market octavia -- having said that, i am very comfortable st. exceptional designed -- seeing exceptional designs. how we measure height and how we look at hickory alley, whatever. fees are being used for infrastructure improvements, the extension and the completion is in the spirit of using the money. it would -- it is perfectly justified. it is not just a self-serving thing. together with the idea of potentially having an agreement for hickory, at an innovative way which reinforces our market octavia it is developing. i think market octavia is one of the most exciting neighborhoods that is happening and i am really happy that we are -- we continue to support innovative design, good design, and neighborhood associations wi
is probably correct. what will eventually happen is u.s. companies will be forced to partner with other nations who have acceded to the treaty the 161 i believe that were mentioned earlier to find opportunities around the globe because they cannot find certainty or protect their own interests through u.s. law, thought u.s. practice, and so, we find they're teaming up with the russians and with the chinese and others or their preference would be to take the lead and to go alone or to find others as their junior partners in assessing and managing this risk. >> my definition of these partnerships, we already divide up the profits, leaving aside the royalties in the sixth year. >> well, that's right, and plus, you're at the behest of others in looking for those partners. we have, i might say, the best companies in the world, the most technologically advanced. we are on the cutting edge of the abilities to go out in the deep waters and produce these energy resources. wide open risk without any limitation is a clear detriment, and as you've heard those people making the decisions in the board
what the neighbors had to say to us. when it came down on those wires it's on now, it took off the very top of the telephone pole. you might not can see the charred marks on the end, but we can smell the singing.
generators. >> facilities using generators also include dialysis and assisted living. signal outages are keeping the maryland state police busy. >> there was a point that we had approximately 500 without power. we currently have around 50 troopers out there for the morning rush and evening rush. >> represented from state agencies are working around the clock, assisting local jurisdictions. like monsters provide a real time accounting of restoration -- live monitors provide a real time accounting of restoration efforts in progress. some policies cover food loss. the insurance company is not responding to your satisfaction, contact the state. >> we have a rapid response team at endeavour's to resolve conflicts without the need to file formal complaint. we have catalogers' success with that program. -- we have had a lot of success with that program. >> state officials advise those looking for a free place to escape the heat to dial 2-1-1. they will guide you to the clues we do to the closest cooling center. -- they will guide you to the closest cooling center. >> crews from throughout t
. kabul was quiet because the government who are hosting 1600 out of which 347 were women. a group of us got together in one car because only that car had access to the tent due to so much security. we have to be very careful to look after them as much as possible. we were going to meet the men coming from conventions where they don't sit with women at the same platform. finally we reached the place and we had to go to the check points of the security. the president is pardon ming. president karzai is coming. finally they stopped it and after the official integration and it was in the middle of the speech that they are hit and these rockets, they hit far behind the tent, but one rocket was just behind the tent. >> were these all at once? >> one after the other. >> how long was in between? >> a second? a second. i just got this information from my colleague saying a suicide attacker was outside the gate trying to get inside. it was such a tense situation for all of us. our life was at risk. but what did the women do? we would continue our state. they were for three days. we took the risk.
. >> but everyone should be encouraged to apply. thank you again for hosting us. >> thank you for including us in "culturewire." ♪ >> good evening. we are officially going to get started. if you want to take a seat -- good evening and welcome to tenderloin elementary school, district 6. my name is jane kim. i have the honor of serving as the representative for this district. thank you so much for being here today. this is our second year doing this and i've seen many familiar faces from last year as well. how wanted knowledge this was initiated last year by our mayor ed lee, who wanted to make sure we were engaging in a much more transparent process around the budget where we were able to hear from stakeholders in terms of what you want to see it in terms of priorities of city dollars. as many of you know, the city budget is the most important policy document that we, on the board of supervisors, work and every year. over last couple of years, we have generated less revenue in our city, and therefore, have had the unfortunate task of making cuts that have hurt our communities and neighborhoo
have made decisions about what the highest priorities are for the use of those funds. that is done through a collaborative effort. it is literally called the lea collaborative. that body has not at least completed its deliberations about how to allocate those funds. that is a process issue. that is the reason why it has not shown up in a different way through positions. >> i am trying to make a point which is that it is hard for the board to pass a budget when there is 900 tricky million dollars that we know will go to something and it is probably really good stuff. we do not know what it is. did i say million? that would be nice. sorry. my order of magnitude is off. you know what i am trying to say. that is the one that i found. there may be other ones in here. i guess what i am saying is, i do not like to vote on a budget that has that amount of money sitting in a category that i know it is not going to be used for. if there is a way to be more transparent about that amount specifically. i talked to dr. blanco. it does not feel very transparent to me. >> thank you. so i want to t
to use the one in the street. pg and e put all the meters outside the houses in a lot of the neighborhoods, these are pretty easy to get to. they are easy to find. if you can find the little round circle in the sidewalk. if you look directly at the house you will find this meter and this shut off on the ground floor. in is a closeup of the shut off. in is the wrench i recommend you you use it for other things. they are cheap and they will work. this is great because you can use it somewhere else if you have to. an adjustable open end wrench. a diagram are off/on. shut off valve. another shut off coming out of the dirt. another problem you have a wrench that doesn't quite work. we like to leave the wrenches next to the shut off. tie is off with a wire. we will cover it again. when you shut off the gas. if the build's's collapsed good idea to shut it off there are probably pipes broken and you can have a gas leak. if you smell gas, leave the /tkaors open, don't operate electric switches that will cause a spark. don't use your cell phone. use the cell phone outside or a n
for the citizens of san francisco. the hospital will use an estimated 20% less energy, 40% less water than regular buildings around san francisco. it will be a rooftop garden. we have light-reflecting roofing material. this is not only for the patients and there families, but to reduce the like which keeps our city cooler. we will use 30% less water to keep the hospital looking green. with today's economy, the part of the project we are most proud of is mayor lee has made it his main goal, but is creating jobs. we have over 140 local enterprise contractors involved with the project. it will be awarded at over $59 million. the project overall is tracking 30%, and with our contracts, that is at 41%. [applause] this partnership has also successfully placed graduates into the various jobs including bricklayers and ironworkers. a lot of jobs happy to be here. and finally, our collaboration exemplifies the vision. is started with mayor lee. a big hand for our former director. we partner with the community and the city family. and here today, we do the best job we can. i want to thank you all for having
more of the important areas of science that are so important to all of us here at ucsf. thank you, leader pelosi. this is a great day today for us at ucsf mission bay and the entire mission bay community. the transportation secretary's announcement earlier today of a $10 million infrastructure investment in mission bay is yet another vote of confidence in the great city of san francisco and our dynamic mission bay community. the grant which the d.c. insiders call a tiger grant will drink infrastructure that is critical for ensuring access for program at ucsf mission bay. with respect to point out the $1.5 million 550-bed hospital. it will provide aid to women, children and cancer patients. construction is underway directly south of us scheduled to open in early 2015. more broadly, the transportation -- will be a key transit source for the full ufsf campus providing bike lines, pedestrian walkways and transit editions necessary to serve this vibe brant and still growing community. as the second largest provider of employment in the city continued success is key to our city and our
recommended approval. those were the highlights of that hearing. which will put us under general public comment. at this time, members of the public may address the commission on items except for agenda items. with respect to the agenda items, i your opportunity to address the commission will correspond with the agenda. i have one speaker card. president fong: great. i have one speaker card. linda chapman. >> at a recent hearing, i told you about the history, and i just wanted to talk a little bit more about some of those buildings we were trying to save. at the time on jones street, there was a big move to demolish rental housing to create condo's. there were lessons learned from that. 1300 sacramento and jones, which is still there, was proposed for demolition. the battle went on for seven years. at the time, it was considered sensitive. it was a curated building. it was landmarked. all the sudden, the developer decided it would be a good thing to develop a 2200 story condo. and he evicted his 22 tenants. and mentioned this before. and then, what happened? the planning commission did
heard from michelle obama. this is a very important issue for our use. if we are going to prepare everyone for the 21st century, we have to prepare them to live in the 21st century. i do not mean high blood pressure. i do not mean diabetes. i mean that live a full and healthy life. this is what they can do. jrotc is one issue, pe is another. but this resolution is offensive. for one thing, the jrotc requires that every betty -- everybody have two instructors. the last amendment said it would have to come from private funding. we sat at this very podium and everybody said, we had commissioners' backing they could fund raise this money. but here we are again, another broken promise. i did not get my credentials. i could not raise the money. now they are asking for this to be paid out of our precious funds. i think you all heard here, 20% of our graduating class is on track not to graduate. 20% is not on track to graduate. that is serious business. they're talking about hundreds and hundreds of students. are we going to find a class that is not a graduation requirements? this is the
with us. but after we got on the walk, it just got easier. it didn't even feel -- there was no pain. we just kept walking, and walking and talking and organizing and feeling this sense of love and unity. we slept together on cots in a church, and because there was no hotel back in the day when dr. king did it. there was no hotel, so we real -- like reverend sharpton, we're really going to do it just like they did it? there's no shuttle service and hotel, and he's like no, we're really going to sleep on a cot in a church and it was great because i got to connect with people from ohio and wisconsin and other places that i would never have met, and we would never have had our guards down enough to talk to one another and be real. so on this walk we kept pushing one another along saying i know you're tired, but we can continue to do that, and i think that that is my closing message for all of you today. we've got to not only be activists, but we've got to the love each other more. we've got to put our petty differences aside, look one another in the eye and say i love you regardless of the
santelli at the cme. also with us, paul christopher. ron, i'll start out with you. what do you think the second half of the year will look like? >> a great technical analyst on wall street had talked about the news response syndrome on wall street and today we got bad news across the board. slow down in manufacturing, domestically and overseas. it's held up relative to the past two summers. so i think the bank of england is likely to ease i wouldn't want to bet against central bankers right now. >> the bernanke put is in place. >> paul, you see a better second half, as well. why. >> and we break thagree hat liq force is a positive one. might be a sluggish start to the quarter, but we look for a better end to the second half. >> do you agree with what was just laid out and what's the strategy that you would employ. >> looks like we've got a lot of headwinds facing this economy and this market however we have an awful lot of values. the value is one of thoefs tough things to try to determine. if you look at edward munch's the scream, someone paid $10 million worth of that. i wouldn't p
appropriately. fees for appraisers, compensation for appraisers, has us a been set by the market. it's supply and demand equation quite frankly. appraisers, indeed, deserve a reasonable customary knee to fe paid for the services they provide. the notion that amcs are somehow driving down fees for appraisers i think is really mistaken. we don't -- we don't set fees for appraisers. we -- we work for lenders. we're the agents of the lender. we're doing the risk assessment pieces of what lenders have traditionally done. we provide, as i indicated in our testimony, services for lenders and for appraisers. one of the things that i've been told, in all the years i was with the appraisal institute, that one of the largest costs for appraisers was marketing. that, in addition to the risk, you know insurance and warranties and those types of things are real costs for appraisers, say, doing retail assignments. much, if not all of that, has been offloaded to the amcs and so there is a sharing of that compensation. that risk and those duties are no longer done by that traditional appraiser. and the conseq
go on and stand up and let us hear from you from your perspective. >> thanks. i'm from palestine. to give me this chance to be this evening in front of you. 22 years ago i was -- it was a month after my marriage and the second time in my life i had been at a peaceful action. i was waiting to see what would happen to me. when my back began to hurt, soldiers took me in handcuffs to a hospital. the doctors there told the soldier to remove the cuffs in the hospital. i was no more or less than a patient he needed to heal. when the doctor examined me, he found that i was pregnant. thanks to him, he asked them to release me immediately. and i go down next day. the doctor is the kind of person i have met often in the conflict. israeli and palestinians connecting -- sorry. the kind of person i have met often in the conflict, israeli and palestinians, connecting with one another as human beings. living next to one another in peace, two peoples, two states. of course, in conflict, not every conflict is easy. but i remember the day i finally newspaper without no doubts that the only way forw
in the cab. >> can you get him on the radio and have him we've to us. -- and have him wave to us. there is a job. >> there is no bathroom. we will not discuss that. >> the safety rules say there have to be some provision. >> there is a provision. >> don't stand under. >> we have a couple of different kinds of cranes around the city. we have a fixed height crane, like this, and then we have some that are climbing cranes. >> this is a free standing crane, not bolted down. about all of these big concrete waits? >> 160 pounds of concrete is the ballast week. >> did you have to pour a big foundation under that? >> this is a construction method that we get to, we work with the contractor. we get a load from the crane manufacturer, figure out the downward load and the overturn load. we then make sure that the foundation can take that load. also, all the anchors on the floor are adequate. >> why would you do this instead of fastening it to a fixed base? >> this crane is not part of the foundation system, so it is out board of the structure. basically, it is something that worked well wit
a joy to work with. he has helped us. the last time of the u.s. open was in san francisco the golf course was used as a parking lot. today it looked actually better, and that is in no small part due to tom's efforts to put together a team common and and his ability to work with our staff. his relationship with tom hart, who has done such an amazing job on behalf of the department. we are very excited for you. we are going to miss you terribly. as i joked last night commo, ths commission just heard about some flexibility for different events that could come to san francisco, while he is heading to the pga event in atlanta are, so we have something extra the gang put together. what do you get a guy who has everything and is on his way to at centinela -- atlanta? you get a pin, signed by many of the people who know and love you. congratulations, tom. >> i would like to say that tom has been an amazing person to work with. it is a difficult job to bring a course to the level harding has achieved. his incoming person i do not think is going to be a problem. i am going to miss you very m
intact before we commit to make those investments. >> who is granting that permit? >> u.s. government. >> the u.s. government. so it's on our current territorial waters? >> yes. it's within the 200-mile exclusive economic zone. >> thank you very much. mr. timmons, you made a statement, and i wrote part of it down so i apologize again if this is wrong. this is an important issue for me. i'm talking about the deep seabed. you talk about international bodies that have permission to issue permits? did i misunderstand you? >> i think so. >> so currently if somebody was going to the deep seabed to try to mine rare earth minerals, there is no current authority other than what authority -- >> under isa, the convention. >> mr. donohue, the last time i brought this up the chairman and i got into a 15-minute discussion, and i blew up the whole meeting. this veto thing is an issue of which there is a lot of conversation. the chairman in his response back to you talked about the council. i'm not talking about environmental right now. i'm just talking about the council. the veto is when you object
housing appraisal. the u.s. global aids coordinator, dr. eric goosby, says the president's platts is helping the world move towards aids-free generation. this came during a brookings institution meeting on the global fight towards the potentially deadly disease. this is just under one hour. >> thank you, everyone, for joining us. welcome to brookings. i am noam unger, a fellow with argot -- development initiative here. perkins is pleased and welcome to welcome dr. eric goosby for our discussion, key lessons from a decade of actions on global aids, and the look for. i will forgo the tree the detailed reputation of biography, goosby's but despite the emphasis of today's events some lessons from the past decade,ambassador g oosby'iss involvement makes him a pioneer. his involvement dates back to 30 years, to when he was already becoming a specialist in the then-unidentified disease that would come to define his career. in the 1990's, he helped lead domestic federal efforts to respond to the disease, including setting up the ryan white care act, that unlocked federal support in respon
: conditions in much of u.s. have been hot and dry. and we're not just talking about the weather. the first six months of the year were the weakest for wall street deal-making in nearly a decade. >> even with the spate of deals that occurred today. we are still trending for possibly the first down year for u.s. m&a since 2009. >> reporter: it's not for lack of cash. corporate america has over a trillion dollars sitting in the bank, representing over 70 weeks of net income. >> m&a is very confident-driven. and i think most of the global corporations are not confident in their business models. >> reporter: they're concerned about the weak global economy, given the crisis in the eurozone, and slowing growth in emerging markets. here in the u.s., growth is stagnant, and many companies are waiting to see the results of the november elections. so, bottom line: don't read too much into today's flurry of deals. >> i can't say that there's any bullish indicator, other than the fact that we are heading into the summer months, which are traditionally slow. >> reporter: no one is predicting a big surge in
into that fund today, those dollars go elsewhere without us having a say until we participate or become part of the treaty process. does that clarify? >> thank you. >> the other thing that i wondey have been covered to some extent, but i haven't heard much discussion since i arrived about how we benefit in the arctic. you talked that a little bit mr. gerard in terms of our ability to have much more of an opportunity to access the minerals and the resources under the arctic. .. the outer continental shelf. we stand here watching that happen we have a very, very significant interest in the arctic. as i mentioned earlier, shall hopefully will start that today. seems that one quarter of the world's oil and gas resources are into the arctic. why we would sit on the sidelines and watch the rest of the world development resource to us is somewhat mystified within our own 200-mile exclusive economic zone in the world that does not take full advantage of the outer continental shelf a big miss the opportunity to sit back and watch 30 years from now we missed on this decisions we made in the arctic whi
's good to have you with us. several major decisions from the supreme court this week. five of the nine justices voted to uphold president obama's healthcare law, saying the law's individual mandate is legal. religious groups were divided over the legislation. some had called healthcare reform a "mol imperative" while others worried the law would allow federally funded abortions. faith communities had also lobbied hard around arizona's immigration law. on monday, the court struck down three parts of that legislation. but, it left in place the requirement that local police check the immigration status of people they believe could be in the country illegally. in another case, the justices ruled against mandatory sentences of life without parole for juveniles convicted of murder. they said courts should have discretion about imposing that punishment. for more on the religious reaction to these decisions, patricia zapor of catholic news service is here and so is kim lawton managing editor of this program. welcome to you both. >> thank you. >> pat, the health care decision, what do you hear?
the fast judicial overreaching on the one hand not to mention, "of verbal wizardry that took us too far, too deep into the forbidden land of the softest that's obviously not the leverage that we typically read in these opinions. so the affordable care act having survived one near-death experience now moves on to what may be the next one, the november elections. but even the very strong language that was of waste by the dissenting justices, and in some instances by the chief justice himself, we now know what a majority of the court thinks the government cannot compel us to do something we are not doing already unless it calls a tax in which case it can and in which case tam put it on the health affairs blog yesterday millions of americans were able to go to sleep last night secure in the knowledge that the federal government cannot meet you eat broccoli. [laughter] we move on now to discuss a little bit more in detail and in depth with the decision said and what it means going forward not just for the field of constitutional law but for all the other concerns i mentioned. and we have a v
now grant us into finer rights. those come from nature and god according to the declaration of independence. >> you know what? the real story is that a lot of this is being thrown back to the states and governors like louisiana's bobby jindal will have the ability to refuse it using whatever curious reasoning they can muster. >> states are different. founing fathers intended each state to be a laboratory of exper menation. the reality is if what works in massachusetts may not be appropriate to another state. >> really comparing mardi gras to -- >> yes, he really did. i'm join ed by sheila jackson lee, good afternoon, ma'am. >> it's a pleasure to be with you and for all americans, this is a special week for us. happy fourth of july. >> indeed. you have been an unwaivering advocate for children in texas. you're the co-chair of the congress congressional children's caucus. what is your reaction when you hear charles perry say he's completing opposed to the health care reform even though 22% of children in your state have no health insurance whatsoever? >> the reason i began thi
offering a place to wait out the very hot days. bob gray is getting his dog used to the neighborhood around the inn in bethesda, because they're going to be there a while. power is out in his neighborhood, and he's made a reservation through next sunday. >> i'm a meteorologist, i work for noaa. so i saw it coming and i made reservations before it hit. >> reporter: oh, you had insider trader information, right? >> yes, i did. >> reporter: the lines of cars waiting to check in at some hotels stretched down the block. it was standing room only at the reservation counter. bob hogueland was lucky enough to snap up one of the last available rooms for his family. they couldn't spend a single night in their 17th floor apartment with no electricity. >> pretty bad up there. and our generator didn't work, either, so no elevators. had to walk up and down the stairs. >> reporter: two days after the storm, and katrina is still cleaning up. after hurricane-strength winds toppled trees in her yard, igniting the power lines outside her window. >> the tree that was laying on the wires actually snapped under
went up $2 to $64. the pass still costs less than all but one of the top ten u.s. cities with similar transportation systems. boston is the only city with a less expensive monthly pass at $59. leaders say the increases are part of a plan to keep fare and fee hikes small and predictable. >> last decade, our board made a decision to increase fares incrementally and not all at once in a large sum. this, we felt, would be an easier burden for our customers and those throughout the city. so this is something when he to do. you know, we want to make this as easy as possibility for our customers. >> the price for a regular one-time ticket is still $2. >>> and they're not the only agency raising fares. cal-train is increasing fairs by 25 cents. the move is meant to encourage customers to use electronic clipper passes, which are not facing a fare increase. if at least half of riders are using those by march, paper tickets will go up again by next july. b.a.r.t. is putting the last of its inflation increases into effect as well. >>> speaking of b.a.r.t., service was shut down for almost an hour
use disorders. joining us in our panel today are dr. h. wesley clark, director, center for substance abuse treatment, substance abuse and mental health services administration, u.s. department of health and human services, rockville, maryland; dr. thomas mclellan, director, center for substance abuse solutions, philadelphia, pennsylvania; dr. alexandre laudet, director, center for the study of addictions and recovery, national development and research institutes, incorporated, new york, new york; dr. candace peterson, associate scientist, evaluation shared service, university of wisconsin population health institute, madison, wisconsin. dr. clark, what does research to practice mean and what does it mean for a methodology or a practice to be evidence-based? research to practice is a concept that captures the evolvement in the research community with regard to various aspects of, in this case, substance abuse or mental health care in an effort to increase the ability to positively affect the individual who's affected by it. so, evidence-based, then, is mobilizing administrative, clini
in the neighborhood and you ask a bunch of questions, well, that doesn't seem to justify us going in and that person winds up killing somebody, or robbing or raping somebody, we'll be the first ones to blame you. so you're in an untenable situation. and when it comes to the war on terror, mr. clegg, i couldn't agree with you more. the reality of the fact is, i wish we had done more to major hassan, not less. there's some websites out there that i'm glad we're monitoring. there's some groups within america that are saying some pretty radical things. and i hope we follow the leaders of these groups to find out what they're up to because homegrown terrorism is on the rise. how do you fight it without fighting a religion? how do you fight homegrown terrorism without fighting people who are local to america people who are loyal to america who belong to a particular faith? i don't know. but i know this. if the law enforcement community in this country fails to find out about the major hasans, we're the first one to be on your case. why didn't you follow this website? he said these things in these meetings
trillion. three to $5 trillion. >> it's one of those members i've been using and hearing and writing this for so long and it's one of those numbers that is so large it is almost impossible to comprehend. what is a trillion? i can't quite imagine a million. >> guest: think about when barack obama came and said 700 million, $700 billion in order to basically reconstct the american economy, think of the cry. you are spending $700 billion. we don't have $700 billion. we dn't even have $3 trillion we have spent. most of the money was borrowed not to mention just about economic cost is also about the opportunity cost. while the united states was chasing the jihadis in afghanistan and pakistan the war was going on so barack obama inherited the legacy of the economic decline and also the rise of the geostrategic power china, india, africa, brazil, turkey, and this is why any particular as you say the question must take into account what he inherited and what he has been able to achieve so far. >> that raises the critical question scenario where he has inherited this weakened position of the
of us have been left behind. a few years ago we took the delegation to vallejo, and warned ossie dviavis they were on trouble. the city went bankrupt. this is about how you treat the poor. at the end of the day, nations and states and localities have failed because the poor people do not have an opportunity. i want to put that in the front burner. i thank you for coming out and sharing the information you have on the city budget, thank you. [applause] >> fantastic ideas that we have heard here today. thank you, mayor and supervisors were coming out to hear these ideas. the arts are an incredible value add to san francisco. we bring in an enormous amount to the tourism budget. we hvave some funding with the hotel task fund. it has gone into the general fund, and we have a chance that is about to be completed for the 1% for public arts, and is being expanded. thank you, to a large amount of the soma area, and we want to make sure we don't lose this with the new housing developments coming up. there are chances to feed into this and it benefits the members of those programs. consider reinst

in mexico and what it means for the u.s. later, al jazeera english correspondent alan fisher talks about how al jazeera's english news network covers american news in the united states and around the world. "washington journal" is next. [captioning performed by national captioning institute] [captions copyright national cable satellite corp. 2012] host: good morning, it is monday, july 2, 2012. right now you are looking at the shot of the pentagon in arlington, virginia, as we spend the first 45 minutes talking about recent changes to the role of women in combat. the department of defense recently opened up 14,000 military jobs closer to the front lines that have previously been closed to women. but critics are questioning whether the military have gone far enough. as we discussed those efforts of this money, we want to know what you think. give us a call -- a very good monday morning to you. we should note that congress is away from washington this week for the fourth of july recess, but it is still going to be an important week politically with the fallout from the supreme court decision a
savings. it would be impossible for us to fill all our positions next year. we believe that the following year we're going to have -- you know, by the end of next year -- if we have an attrition rate, the takeaway 2013, 2014, we will not be in a good position. the issue we are running into is that we are working with the mayor's office and the controller's office on trying to get them to put in a reserve budget for the salary value and fringe value that they do not think we will be able to use. and then we have the flexibility if it comes to pass that we are able to fulfill positions. we will have the money. we will already be there. it will be appropriated. i think we have a pretty strong case, and the mayor's office will be working with the supervisors on trying to explain things. we have easily proved that they cannot cut back. it is two years ago that we split the amount -- a little less than the amount that we are going to budget. training was a little difficult. but i honestly believe that we will be able to take that cut and still have more than enough to be able to get through our
to note that it is poor law enforcement. law enforcement is a finite resource. using law enforcement resources profiling as opposed to relying on our facts based on behavior suggesting a crime is a waste of that law enforcement resource. it leaves us less safe and more at risk when we don't target based on conduct and behavior suggestive of a crime but based on other considerations informed by prejudice. my comments today will focus on religious profiling of american muslims. up to 6 million americans know what it's like to be looked upon with suspicion in the post-9/11 america. perhaps even before. although muslim americans work hard and play by the rules and a small number don't. many even live the american dream and send their kids to college and earn a living just like everyone else. yet, many know all too well what it means to be pulled off of an airplane, pulled out of line, denied service, called names, or even physically attacked. like other americans, muslim-americans want law enforcement to uphold public safety. and not be viewed as a threat, but as an ally. when fbi for ex
we then had people men, women, young and old saying this is not okay with us. speaking out through traditional means and also online and we saw a change. we also had in virginia, when bob mcdonald and the republican legislature say not only are we going to have mandatory ultrasounds, we're going to force state mandated transvaginal probes on the population. women and men said hold on a second. this is way too far. while we still have now mandatory ultrasounds in the state, we at least got that part stripped down and we had a person hood bill that was sent back to committee. then miss sandra fluke came around. i have to say what is wrong with darrell issa? what is wrong with that guy? [ applause ] >> i just don't get it. sandra comes along. when rush limbaugh attacked her on day one i'm ashamed to say his bar of obnoxiousness is set so low, i thought typical rush. it was on day two when he called for sandra's sex tapes to be posted online for the himself. i said we can't stand for this any longer. it's a funny thing how this started. i'm lucky to have a relationship with msnbc and h

from what science teaches us about the brain and apply it to the more spiritual principles of recovery which talk about what do we want out of life. and there shouldn't be any reason why these two approaches can't coexist. i wish they didn't get me crying. [laughter] it's real important that they understand that we are all in this process. and if i was able to come out of that process successfully and have the opportunity to be able to be of service to help you, then you can do it, too. i'm learning that i'm not my disease. it's just something that i have. it's not who i am. make sure that you're paying attention to what's happening in the field of research and addiction because it's changing every day and you can't-you cannot be stagnant, i don't think, in this field, and you can't just be comfortable with one approach. things are always changing. from a individual practitioner perspective, you feel good about what you're doing because you're providing something that you know will work and that you can see outcomes for, which gives you the reinforcement, sometime, that you need to kno

. use water only for the essential services. use water wisely so water tanks can refill. >> it takes a lot of energy and a lot of work for the pumps at the filtration plants to produce massive quantities of water. >> even if the power is restored, conserve. if you're thinking about getting a generator, be careful. two people got sick because of the fumes of generators. only use them outside and keep them as far away from the house as possible. many businesses and schools are closed or delayed. for a list, go to website, wbaltv.com. >> at least two deaths in maryland because of falling trees. a woman died in her bed in silver spring. one person was pronounced dead in harlan over the weekend. two passengers were treated for minor injuries. police investigating an officer- involved shooting. the officer caught up with the suspect and that led to a struggle. that is when the officer killed the suspect. >> domestic situations are one thing that police deal for. >> police have identified that suspect as michael wudtee. detectives are still investigating the shooting. more than 200 state la
